Women, Keep Your Uterus!
DISCLAIMER: I am not saying this video is an example of what I am doing personally, nor am I endorsing the products or services mentioned. I just agree with the main points of healing yourself and keeping your lady parts.
As a first-time mother, I am having conversations about feminine health with my elders that I have not had before, and the amount of women I know who have elected to have their uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, etc. removed is astounding. What's worse is these 40+ year old women lack the understanding of their bodies that would allow them to see the dire consequences of ridding themselves of offal. I only know 1 person who had a hysterectomy because of cancer. These women are so glad to be period free, they don't realize their abdominal support is in jeopardy of prolapse.
These lucrative surgeries are now discussed with greedy physicians as a first choice instead of a last resort. 60 years ago the idea of having the uterus removed was uncommon and unacceptable to most women, and now the new generations of middle aged women are singing the surgeon's praises!
My plea is a simple one: before you go under the knife, research and count the costs. Don't just do a Google search and read some posts. Speak with people who are willing to give you a true account of what changes occurred. Menstrual cycles are a pain, but the creator is not flawed. If the organ is removed and is not immediately threatening your life, the surgery will not be a total win.
This is Realest Mother Dearest signing off. Please comment below if you have had or considered having a hysterectomy. I want to know your thoughts, people!
